Quails Run - Tuesday Treasury

We are in Benson, AZ sitting in Saguaro Skp Park for Escapees.  Here's a view from our front window.  Isn't it wonderful!  I know people pay hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars to get this view.

I will post photos of the park's Casitas and the lots later.

So, I have been watching the Gambel Quail run around the park area.  They are keeping our cats entertained by running by the motorhome and being very noisy.  It's a good thing we are on a boat because the cats would be tilting it to one side from gathering at one window.

Wait for me!
 While walking Hitch, I notice two Quails sitting on the barb wire.  First there were just the two, then there were four of them.  I realized they were watching Hitch and I.  Alerting the others by giving them warnings as we got closer.  I tried to get a photo of all four, but Hitch had other plans and yanked on the leash just as I clicked.  By the time I got him to come back to me, all four were gone.  Darn!  That's what I get for trying to take bird pictures with a cat on the leash!

Here's my Tuesday Treasury...Enjoy!

Treasury Tuesday


  1. GREAT photos of the birds. I've never seen those before. We have many unusual birds here and they are fun to watch. Some are hard to get photos of though.

  2. Great quail finds! =)

  6. I so enjoy following your blog. Loved today's pictures of the quails. We are wintering in southern TX. Maybe our plans should be changed and head to AZ.

  7. I've never seen one of those quail so they look very exotic. The pictures are great.

  8. Thanks Artisanallunwound! So I am finding out! I thought getting a telescope lens would make it easier to get a photo of some birds. I guess I need more patience. :0)

  9. Thanks Carla! I am following you too!

  10. Thanks Anonymous! I do prefer Arizona over Texas unless we are along the Gulf Coast. Let me know if you head out this way.


Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment. I enjoy hearing from you.
